While visiting Andahuaylillas, a small village between Cuzco and Puno on the Peruvian Andes, two old ladies came to sit on the front steps of the church, scrutinizing the agitation caused by buses of tourists stopping by to visit the impressive art work of the church. This woman was staring at me while chewing coca leaves, and the camera caught the fragility of her sight shaped by years of hard life in this high altitude location.

Location: Andahuaylillas, Cuzco, Peru
